Discover the mythic valleys, gorges and forest-clad mountains of the Peloponnese
Holiday amid the wonder of the Greek Peloponnese where the mysteries of ancient Greece still feel strangely alive. Your Peloponnese holiday can mix historical tours with beach breaks, and serve up a generous side of Greek delicacies and fine wine tasting experiences.
You’ll find few places in Greece that are simultaneously as romantic and so packed with heritage. Come to Corinth, where you’ll find the striking Odeon and the famous Temples of Apollo and Octavia. Nearby Epidaurus is also renowned for its magnificent theatre, which dates back to the 4th century BC. Its sheer size is staggering, and will give you a true sense of the importance of the arts to ancient Greek culture.
We can also arrange a guided trip to Ancient Olympia, home to the first Olympic Games. The site here includes the Temple of Zeus and the Palaestra, an ancient training centre for athletes. The Archaeological Museum is illuminating with its large room entirely dedicated to exploring the Olympic Games.
While the Peloponnese is the beating heart of mythical Greece, that’s not all you’ll find here. Let us arrange a hiking trip or 4x4 Peloponnese tour and you’ll soon get to see the best of the region’s striking terrain. The landscape here is characterised by forest-clad mountains interspersed with valleys and gorges, as well as ancient hill towns and miles of quietly dramatic coastline.
